Society for Women’s Health Research Medtronic Prize for Scientific Contributions to Women’s HealthThe Society for Women’s Health Research and the Medtronic Foundation have established an annual prize of $75,000 to recognize a woman scientist or engineer for her contributions to women’s health.
The prize encourages women scientists and engineers to work on issues uniquely related to women’s health and rewards women who have devoted a significant part of their careers to this area. The prize honors commitment to the area of sex differences and work to pass this commitment to collaborators and students as both a role model and mentor. The prize is given to an outstanding scientist or engineer in mid-career whose work has led or will lead directly to the improvement of women’s health.
